By the end, Ransom is being taken away in handcuffs while the Thrombey family stands outside, watching him go. Marta, meanwhile, is standing on the balcony of the mansion, sipping a drink from one of Ransom’s mugs and literally looking down at the Thrombeys. It’s a topical, heavy-handed parable: Marta, the hard-working Latina immigrant with a heart of gold inheriting the earth and besting a bunch of grossly privileged white people. It’s not subtle! But it’s fun and perhaps the sort of exaggerated balm we need at the movies right now.
On the day of her fifth wedding anniversary, Amy disappears. When the appearances of a happy union begin to crumble, Nick, her husband, becomes the prime suspect. With the help of his twin sister, he tries to prove his innocence, while investigating what really happened to the woman.
